  • Hi umairrafiq13,

    Just to make sure, have you assigned AMD Graphics to the games you play? If not, follow the steps below to enable switchable graphics:

    1. Right click an empty area on the desktop.
    2. Select “ATI Catalyst Control Center” from the context menu that appears.
    3. Click Power and select Switchable Graphics
    4. Choose an application (in your case the games) from the list or browse and select an application and assign the appropriate GPU.

    If Switchable graphics is configured properly, please install GPU-Z and check under “Sensors” tab in the application while running the game in the background. It will show you the GPU being used as AMD Graphics.

    Note: This 3rd party application is exclusively my suggestion based on the personal research and experience. Usage of this application is purely based on your discretion.

    By the way, which is the benchmarking application you are using to check the FPS for the games and what are the games you are benchmarking?

    Thanks & Regards

  • I did everything correctly, setting game to the high performance.

    I used to play league of legend it give arround 100fps and intel hd4000 is capable of giving that type of performance.
    but when i play episodes from liberty city it give around 20-30 fps on very low settings.
    gpu-z got stuck when i start it.

    i uninstall the drivers download it from dell support and install it now the amd catalyst is not starting saying 

    amd catalyst cannot be started there is nothing u can configure with amd catalyst.
